The new buzz word they're trying to push is...."Absolutist".. if the Bill of Rights is flexible. The VERY PURPOSE of the Bill of Rights is to set absolute boundaries on government encroachment! They are trying to imply that if you believe the Amendments are non-negotiable you are an evil "Absolutist". Obama and his ilk are worming this stupid word into every speech now.

Remember the insane restrictions Chicago put on gun owners after McDonald V. Chicago... Then again Chicago's stellar performance in the murder count arena speaks volumes. It's funny how politicians and thugs are the only people carrying in IL. Professional courtesy?

Luckily for the rest of the state the Chicago area politicians didn't win. The US Constitution won.
